It List: Tuesday 10/02/07

Jenny Hoyston's Paradise Island/The Hot As Shits/Adrienne Anemone (Rubber Gloves): Jenny Hoyston's ability as a performer will probably make up for the fact that her work in the heavily No Wave influenced Erase Errata is generally more interesting, especially rhythmically. Her solo project, Paradise Island, is definitely worth checking out, and her injection of more pop grounded structure doesn't completely eliminate the traces of skronk and squawk in her flagship band. The Hot As Shits however, are a hard rock band from Austin that has more in common with The Runaways than The Static. Adrienne Anemone is from The Tuna Helpers but her solo project is a little too Ren Faire for me.

Fishboy/Calhoun/ J. Roddy Walston And The Business
(Double Wide):
I added this since I know there are many Fishboy fans out there. I'll leave it at that.

NOTE: I want to add that the KITES and Russian Tsarlag show at House Of Tinnitus that was rescheduled for tonight, might be tomorrow night or even Thursday. We will let you know as soon as there is a definitive answer. What I saw of the opener acts on Sunday (including the excellent Aunt's Analog) have convinced me to make it to this no matter what.

Was merely trying to convey to the fellow DMST fans that I certainly understand where they're coming from. Yes. It's true. I really do adore that band. They make me happy. I respect them. They're doing something that I could only dream of doing with my life. I have bundles and bundles of admiration for them.

I too, thought it was weird that they were not written on, but in the end- what the fuck do I care?

who is daniel folmer? Remember when he called himself simply "Volmer?" LOL! It was kind of like when Prince changed his name only without the talent.

From Wikipedia:


Volmer is the musical brainchild of one daniel folmer (autobiography) . With an extremely long list of instrumental talents, he writes the songs, records them, plays them live, and tries his best to distribute them. Volmer is from Denton, TX and has drawn the praise of not only the people who hear the music, but also other highly talented musicians. "I guess it's because if the super talented artists love it, it brings you a new sense of self satisfaction. As musicians, we're always subconsciously competing, and when someone takes time to say 'hey, i really liked your set' it means a lot."

Musically, Volmer is highly eclectic while at the same time retaining trademarked highly harmonic melodies and somehow drawing parallels between styles you never thought could exist.

At the tender age of 22, Volmer has already recorded 3 EPs, the latest everyone's columbus, was produced by pAperchAse guru and super producer john congleton. congleton has also worked with explosions in the sky, convicted pedophile R. Kelly, and outspoken Irish humanitarian Bono of U2.

The name Volmer was derived from a story of a German great grandfather whom was forced to change his name at Ellis Island during World War I due to superpatriot sentiment. "I always thought that Ellis Island was an epitome of everything that was wrong with America and still sometimes is. By no means am I anti-American, I love it here, but I do believe a lot of things are wrong that should be right."

This article was written by Mark Livesay of Flower Mound, TX.

okay, kinda freaked out... who are you?! david? nah...

went to the hoyston show - missed the hot as shits because the show started earlier than usual and the set only lasted about 25 minutes from what i understand... i love tuna helpers and adrienne seems very nice, but i agree with the weshotjrkids on the ren thing. i love her voice, but not in that type of musical setting.

i hadn't heard the paradise island stuff, so didn't know what to expect necessarily, but i can say i thought it would be a bit more sonic. i missed the drum machine stuff cause i was talking at the bar and the sound was so low i thought it was soundsystem cd for a bit. caught the folksy/singer songwritery part of her set. i was a little disappointed, but there's something there. a couple of definite gems. you could tell she and her drummer were worn out and feeling fairly hopeless about the show. that might have had something to do with it

did i mention there was about 20-25 people there including the rgrs employees?

JUST ANOTHER DAY IN DENTON TEXAS, WHICH BY THE WAY, Denton is a city in the United States and the county seat of Denton County, Texas. According to the 2000 U.S. Census, the city population was 80,537, making it the eleventh largest city in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. In July 2006, however, the United States Census Bureau estimated Denton's population as 109,561.[2] The same estimate names Denton as the nation's ninth fastest-growing city among those over 100,000 people.[3]

Denton is home to two state universities, the University of North Texas, the largest university in North Texas and the fourth largest in Texas,[4] and Texas Woman's University, the largest state-supported university for women in the United States.

Both the city and county were named after John B. Denton, a pioneer, preacher, lawyer and Texas Militia Captain. Residents of Denton are known as "Dentonites" and the city has been known as the “Redbud Capital of Texas” since 1993.[5] In 2006, Denton was selected by Money magazine as one of the "Top 100 Best Places to Live in America
